There's Only One Sauzee
When Alex McLeish persuaded European legend Franck Sauze to sign for Hibernian Football Club in February 1999, it was the clubs biggest coup since the signing of George Best. Many people questioned the Gallic Greats motivations, afraid that he was merely coming to pick up his salary and quietly see out his distinguished career. They could not have been more wrong. From his very first game, Franck Sauze embraced the Hibs culture and quickly won over the fans. He proved that he was still a great footballer and helped to lead his new team from the mediocrity of the Scottish First Division back to the heights of the Scottish Premier League. Sauze became club captain, inspired his team mates, scored many unforgettable goals, took Hibs to a Scottish Cup Final and became a club legend. An ill-fated spell as the clubs manager saw the end of Sauzes Hibernian career, but he left the club as one of its best loved and most revered players. Now Ted Brack takes fans behind the scenes to document the highs and lows of the days when Le God graced Easter Road. With inside stories from directors, managers, players and supporters, this is a must-read book for Hibs fans of all ages who still treasure the memory of Franck Sauze, Hibernian superstar.
